Samsung Galaxy Nexus: Pricing and release date leaks

October 17th, 2011

Samsung Galaxy NexusUS network Verizon has leaked pricing and release date details for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, ahead of the handset’s launch in just two days time.

Internal details from the US operator were sent to Engadget by an unnamed tipster, confirming that the phone will cost $299 on a 24 month contract. Here in the UK, however, networks are likely to offer the phone for free – but this, of course, is still to be confirmed. The leak also reveals the handset’s “MAP Period”, which means it’s likely to hit the market on November 10.

It’s fair to say, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus has seen its fair share of leaks, revealing almost all we need to know about the Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone. On the spec-front, we’re expecting to see a hefty 4.65-inch HD screen, coated in Sammy’s Super AMOLED goodness. There’s also talk of an ‘advanced’ 5 megapixel primary camera capable of shooting 1080p HD video, a front-facing video-call camera, integrated NFC smarts, and all of the usual high-speed connectivity.

The Samsung Galaxy Nexus will make its first official outing on October 19 in Hong Kong. It’ll be a late night for those wanting to catch a glimpse of the phone, however, as the event won’t kick off until 2:00am BST.
